This proceedings contains the papers presented at The 8th International Symposium on Practical Design of Ships and Other Floating Structures held in China in September 2001 - the first PRADS of the 21st Century. The overall aim of PRADS symposia is to advance the design of ships and other floating structures as a professional discipline and science by exchanging knowledge and promoting discussion of relevant topics in the fields of naval architecture and marine and offshore engineering. In line with the aim, in welcoming the new era, this Symposium is intended to increase international co-operation and give a momentum for the new development of design and production technology of ships and other floating structures for efficiency, economy, safety, and environmental production. The main themes of this Symposium are Design Synthesis, Production, Hydrodynamics, Structures and Materials of Ships and Floating Systems. Proposals for over 270 papers from 26 countries and regions within the themes were received for PRADS 2001, and about 170 papers were accepted for presentation at the symposium. With the high quality of the proposed papers the Local Organising Committee had a difficult task to make a balanced selection and to control the total number of papers for fitting into the allocated time schedule approved by the Standing Committee of PRADS. Volume I covers design synthesis, production and part of hydrodynamics. Volume II contains the rest of hydrodynamics, and structures and materials.

This book introduces a holistic approach to ship design and its optimisation for life-cycle operation. It deals with the scientific background of the adopted approach and the associated synthesis model, which follows modern computer aided engineering (CAE) procedures. It integrates techno-economic databases, calculation and multi-objective optimisation modules and s/w tools with a well-established Computer-Aided Design (CAD) platform, along with a Virtual Vessel Framework (VVF), which will allow virtual testing before the building phase of a new vessel. The resulting graphic user interface (GUI) and information exchange systems enable the exploration of the huge design space to a much larger extent and in less time than is currently possible, thus leading to new insights and promising new design alternatives. The book not only covers the various stages of the design of the main ship system, but also addresses relevant major onboard systems/components in terms of life-cycle performance to offer readers a better understanding of suitable outfitting details, which is a key aspect when it comes the outfitting-intensive products of international shipyards. The book disseminates results of the EU funded Horizon 2020 project HOLISHIP.

Ship-shaped offshore units are some of the more economical systems for the development of offshore oil and gas, and are often preferred in marginal fields. These systems are especially attractive to develop oil and gas fields in deep and ultra-deep water areas and remote locations away from existing pipeline infrastructures. Recently, the ship-shaped offshore units have been applied to near shore oil and gas terminals. This 2007 text is an ideal reference on the technologies for design, building and operation of ship-shaped offshore units, within inevitable space requirements. The book includes a range of topics, from the initial contracting strategy to decommissioning and the removal of the units concerned. Coverage includes both fundamental theory and principles of the individual technologies. This book will be useful to students who will be approaching the subject for the first time as well as designers working on the engineering for ship-shaped offshore installations.

Advanced Ship Design for Pollution Prevention is a collection of papers reflecting the teaching materials for a Master of Naval Architecture course developed in the European ASDEPP (Advanced Ship Design for Pollution Prevention) project. The project was financed by the European Commission within the TEMPUS program. The topics covered in the book include: * modelling of the environment and environmental loads * ship structural reliability and strength * fatigue reliability and rational inspection planning; * collision and grounding as criteria in design of ship structures * probabilistic approach to damage stability Advanced Ship Design for Pollution Prevention shows recent trends and developments in Naval Architecture. It is a valuable reference source for PhD students, academics, engineers and professionals involved in design and maintenance of ships and marine structures.

Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures contains the latest research results and innovations presented at the 6th International Conference on Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures (Trondheim, Norway, 17-19 June 2013). The book comprises contributions made in the field of numerical and analytical analysis of collision and grounding consequences for ships and offshore structures in various scenarios, such as narrow passageways and arctic conditions including accidental ice impact. A wide range of topics is covered: - Recent large-scale collision experiments - Innovative concepts and procedures to improve the crashworthiness of ships and offshore structures - Ship collisions with offshore renewable energy installations - Residual strength of damaged ship structures as well as mitigation measures for the consequences of such accidents - Statistical analysis of collision and grounding incidents to analyse and predict the probability of their occurrence - Developments concerning rational rules for structural design to avoid collisions - Grounding actions comprising the use of general risk assessment methodologies Collision and Grounding of Ships and Offshore Structures contributes significantly to increasing the safety and reliability of seaborne transport and operations, and will be useful to academics and engineers involved in marine technology-related research and the marine industry.

This book guides naval architects from the first principles of the physics of control surface operation, to the use of experimental and empirical data and applied computational fluid dynamic modelling of rudders and control surfaces. The empirical and theoretical methods applied to control surface design are described in depth and their use explained through application to particular cases. The design procedures are complemented with a number of worked practical examples of rudder and control surface design. The online companion site contains an extensive modelling data library, plus software for theoretical control surface design, based on over 25 years of world-class research at the University of Southampton, an incredible resource for engineers in this field. . The only text dedicated to marine control surface design . Provides experimental, theoretical and applied design information valuable for practising engineers, designers and students . Accompanied by an online extensive experimental database together with software for theoretical predictions and design development
